My students need iPods to access curriculum and enhance learning and Time for Kids to expand their minds and improve their reading skills.
Two incredibly important elements of a child's education are access to technology and access to non-fiction texts, specifically news related. Unfortunately, my students are not consistently exposed to these resources at the level they should be.
My students are 6-8th graders who want nothing more than to learn and expand their minds.
They are eager to try new things, learn about what is happening in the world, and access new forms of technology. They are hard working, conscientious, and kind. I have no doubt that iPods and a subscription to Time for Kids would be fully utilized by my students.
iPods in our classroom will serve multiple purposes. Students will be able to access grade level curriculum through audio texts and will also be able to submit assignments through recording their voices. The iPods will also allow students to practice reading fluency. Time for Kids will provide exciting reading opportunities as well as encourage students to become more informed and engaged in modern day events.
In today's world, technology is essential.
Children are put at a major disadvantage if they do not have regular access to technology. iPods are a major asset to a child's learning in multiple ways. Similarly, regular access to non-fiction texts are incredibly important to reading development. Time for Kids is an excellent resource which will allow my students to grow in reading and world knowledge.
